Gum disease, also known as peridontal disease, is a major cause of tooth loss. But with the correct interventions and management it can be improved.
Removing plaque is critical in controlling gum disease - plaque contains bacteria, and plaque can harden to tartar. Our dedicated team will help you to control and minimise gum disease.
Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss and therefore needs swift care and attention.
What are the first signs of gum disease?
Gum disease may not always be painful, however, you may notice swelling and redness of the tissue, as well as bleeding after brushing or flossing. Other signs are:
-Loose and/or sensitive teeth
-Gum abscesses and infection
What causes gum disease?
The most common cause is a lack of oral hygiene which results in plaque buildup. This soft, sticky substance is formed when bacteria collects on the surface of the teeth and can result in long-term issues if left untreated.
Smoking, diabetes and a weakened immune system can also all contribute to suffering from gum disease.
How can I stop gum disease getting worse?
Good dental hygiene is crucial including brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing as well as regular visits to your dentist.
